McCarthy relief at Wolves victory

04 March 2009 09:35
"We haven't done anything different all through the time we've not been winning." We were playing the same way - what I would say is we were better in possession of the ball, we passed it, we worked it." For the first time McCarthy paired summer signings Matt Hill and George Friend down the left hand side, and both players made a case for retaining their places in the side. "Terrific I thought, the pair of them," he noted. "You know George - he's come to the club as a left-back, albeit an attacking left-back, and I thought his performance was fabulous. "And Matty - whenever he's been asked to play he's been great." Although Wolves hold a five point lead over Reading, the Royals have two games in hand. Birmingham City are a further point adrift with one game in hand going into their midweek fixture at home to Bristol City. But McCarthy is determined not to get too wrapped up in what the other promotion challengers are getting up to. He added: "We're top. We won. We've got three more points - that's how I see it. I can't affect anybody else's result."
